Can dieting really cause weight gain? The answer is yes. If you diet incorrectly as many do it actually triggers your body to store more fat as a sort of survival mechanism. You need to know how to eat in a healthy, reasonable way. Fad diets never allow for this.

Key Takeaways:

  • The amount of stress you put it through with all of these goofy diets is enough to make it want to kick your teeth in.
  • Enough already with the crazy diets. Last month you tried this diet. This month you’re trying that diet. Who knows what insanity you’ll be trying in the coming months (hopefully none after you read this article).
  • When you restrict your calories, your brain thinks that you are starving (whether intentionally or unintentionally).

“The body that is constantly seeing a caloric deficit is more likely to hold onto fat quicker than someone who doesn’t restrict their food intake because it knows a restriction is coming.”
